Acts of heroism also emerged, telling of the way teachers diverted Roslyakov’s attention during his attack on the annexed Black Sea peninsula. Teacher Vladislav Miroshnikov revealed adults at the college in port Kerch “sacrificed their lives” to allow students to flee amid scenes of panic.

Meanwhile, the politician appointed by Vladimir Putin as head of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, insisted Roslyakov was the sole perpetrator but the politician was shouted down by parents.

They told him: “You are lying! Our children say differently.”

Several eyewitness accounts from students suggested there was more than one gunman.
